Vegetables just a phone call away; women farmers initiate home delivery service
Cheriyanadu (Alappuzha): The coronavirus outbreak and the sudden lockdown might have put many households in crisis as they could not stock much edible items in the short period of time. But a group of women here have initiated a venture to deliver vegetables to households on demand.
The vegetable home delivery was started by various farming clusters under Cheriyanadu Krishi Bhavan. They charge only a reasonable price for the service. They decided to start home delivery as the coronavirus outbreak happened right at the time of harvest. With no customers arriving to buy the vegetables, the ladies planned to accept orders through phone and deliver it to households.
The home delivery of vegetables is available in a five-kilometre radius in the area. The harvest was inaugurated by panchayat member Adv. Deepa Stenett in the presence of agriculture officer Abhilash Karimulakkal.
People can order vegetables by contacting the clusters on these numbers.
